We'll admit it, we're not all that surprised that Heath Ledger's Oscar winning role as the Joker in The Dark Knight was named your favorite of his performances in the latest MD Poll. His take on the bat-villain was instantly iconic, as was his Ennis Del Mar in the second place vote getter, a little film called Brokeback Mountain.
In other words, we knew going in that those two taking the top spots were a given. What we were most curious about was what would come in third place. And that was his first movie hit, the teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You. One could say that his Patrick Verona was just too good to be true.
